About the project Edit

It's difficult to get free internet space that is respectful of your privacy. Companies like Google, Yahoo, Microsoft or Facebook offer their high performance services for free and in return we give them access to our data.

To date, registered users have access to the following services:
- mail
- calendars
- blogs
- “carte chimère”
- Jabber account

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

This project is the brainchild of a group that brings together people and/or structures, and works under free or affiliated licenses. So not only computer scientists are involved in this project, but also actors from liberal arts (such as musicians, writers, photographers, etc.) and content producers for the social good (associations, teachers, individuals, etc.).

The association aims to promote its free use in all of its forms and to contribute to this movement through: activism, advice, support and training, organizing events and projects around the content, creation and open source software, adhering to open standards.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

We believe that the Internet is a great tool for discussion and cooperation. The goal is not to compete with existing associations that provide web hosting services. These services are meant to supplement the offer so that all Internet users can have ''uncommodified'' space on the Internet.

- Our project is already providing services to individuals;
- These services must be free and ad-free; this relies on demonstrating total respect for the privacy of users and non-commercial use of their data or data retention;
- The infrastructure is established through workshops. Neophyte users involved with the set up and administration of this technology.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The potential for implementing this project is considerable because the documentation of the technical procedures for setting up the platform is available for free on the Maison du Libre website. If an association or any other entity would want to make a similar platform, it would be easy to implement.
